Heater relay code fault on Indesit WD125 washer dryer - error 8

This is the second WD125 I have had from Indesit, as the first one had THE SAME fault and had to be replaced in warranty. I'm going to have to call them again, but I think it pretty bad form that the same machine has so many posts with the same error on so many forums. It's clearly a manufacturing error and yet Indesit expect you to pay a fortune for an engineer and a new PCB. This latest machine is only two years old!
Anyboy want to join me in a joint complaint?

Hi gmarf....to reset your machine to cancel those symptoms, Unplug your machine from the Wall Outlet for a minimum of 1 minute. Upon restoring power, it should be reset and ready-to-go.....If you have any further questions or issues please update your post....good luck my friend

SOURCE: Indesit front loading washing machine error code

i am a recently retired engineer of 20 years, but this sounds like (based on the info given) a heater element fault, after the machine fills up and agitates a few times the heater should start, check the heater for open circuit, replace if needed, of course it just could be a wire off? if i have helped rate me please

SOURCE: Indesit w127 error code f-08

Error F08 is indicating that the heater relay is stuck or cannot be activated or the contact has welded in the relay.
The only thing u can do yourself, is to check that the heater is o/k, if u can determine that it is , then u have no option other thancalling an engineer.out.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

F-08 indicated.


Indesit or Hotpoint washing machine flashing 8 times or displaying error code F08 usually indicate "Heater relay can't be activated" or "heater relay stuck".
The heater relay on these machines (as at time of writing) is on the pcb, the main control board at the back of the machine. Sometimes they can get jammed, and freed with a gentle tap. Other causes of this fault listed are "check pressure switch, heater & module connections". Therefore this isn't an easy diy fix and if you don't know what a relay is or looks like it's best to get in an engineer for this fault.

Start machine and let's water in for few seconds then makes screeching noise and stops code F08 on display any ideas to what may be problem


Indesit or Hotpoint washing machine flashing 8 times or displaying error code F08 usually indicate "Heater relay can't be activated" or "heater relay stuck".
The heater relay on these machines (as at time of writing) is on the pcb, the main control board at the back of the machine. Sometimes they can get jammed, and freed with a gentle tap.

Therefore this isn't an easy diy fix and if you don't know what a relay is or looks like it's best to get in an engineer for this fault.
Some descriptions on various models also still say "heater relay", or "heater relay can't be activated", or "heater relay stuck", but also add, "check pressure switch connections for heater, wiring and module connections".

Indesit washer-dryer wd125 manual


Hi,

I've been looking for these instructions and have just stumbled across them . Just inside the door there should be a barcode. On the top right check the model no. mine is WD 12S, despite the model no on the outside being WD125.

If so, look here http://imagebank.indesitcompany.co.uk/brochures_online/pdf/indesit/Laundry/WD12S.pdf
